What may happen after death is hearsay, but it’s worth considering as it has a psychological effect on our behaviour now. Facing death is exactly the same as facing life.
Some may believe that there is consciousness after death, and some not. Most don’t want to think about this subject at all, so their life is one of psychological indifference.
We may be anxious about death,
feeling we’re not perfect enough.
That, in truth, is not correct.
We may also feel we’re not perfect enough to face life.
This is also incorrect.
All we need to know is that phenomena projected on to our mind is not our actual reality. Our reality is pure knowingness – pure consciousness.
We may not be the best meditators, but if we are aware of both pure, ethereal consciousness and the illusory clutter in the mind, that – in itself – leads to a confident life, and a fearless death.
When we think of ourselves as products,
we fear being consumed by death.
When pure, ethereal consciousness is realised,
there is no product to die.
Our essential nature is already enlightened.
We just doubt.
If only people could die before they die.
Yes. If people could only let go of indoctrination.
If only they could let go of the religion that teaches them to fear death in the first place.
Religion is a good start and most
find comfort in a community.
But it can provoke us, where we realise
that words are not the truth,
the personal experience of the words
is the truth.
As experience refines so the meaning
of the words refine.
Religions use fear to control and manipulate their followers.
Fear, guilt, and divisiveness have nothing to do with that which religions claim to worship.
There is nothing to fear.
Followers can seem a bit strange. 🙂
